[solved] Missing the Alt+Tab window selector

Postby donkeyhottie on Thu Oct 25, 2012 11:23 pm

Installed: Mint 13 Cinnamon
But I do not use what I think is MintMenu(?)
I love Cairo Dock - I select login session Gnome + Cairo Dock GLX

Works nicely. Looks very much like the MacBook Air that I have too.

But I lost Alt+Tab with this session type. I do not know which component brings that, I do not know anything about Window Managers, Compiz, mdm, gdm... and whatnot. Linux GUI is not my expertise, at all.

Alt+Tab works if I login using Linux Mint (if I recall), the default setup, with MintMenu.

I would like to keep Cairo Dock, and have that Alt+Tab. Or, anything for the effect. How do I switch windows using keyboard with this?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Just login to gnome or cinnamon session and set cairo dock to autostart. If you hide the panels there is no difference.
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
